Knowledge Management

When customers and employees have issues, many prefer to find an answer themselves rather than contacting customer service or an internal helpdesk. To address this need, companies require an easy‑to‑use and efficient knowledge management solution that makes it easy to incorporate knowledge creation–and ongoing improvements–into everyday work.

ServiceNow® Knowledge Management provides an out‑of‑the‑box knowledge experience for customers, employees, and the agents who serve them. Powerful workflow and publishing tools let agents search for—as well as create—knowledge content while resolving issues. Integration with the Service Portal lets customers and employees quickly find solutions that boost satisfaction and reduce service costs.
